Steel Wire Rod Mill
Major features for the
wire rod mill
Fig. 1: 10 Stands No-Twist
- Rolling speed: 60-100m/s or
still higher, achieved with high-speed rolling block (Fig.
- Billet size: 120mm, 150mm up
to 180mm square
- Finish size: Dia. 5.5mm or
larger round (or possibly also square, etc.)
- Controlled rolling and
cooling: with controlled water-box cooling and controlled
air cooling, and draft scheduling for controlled rolling
- Number of stands may be 26, 28,
or other numbers, depending on the billet size and wire size mix. Rod
rolling with less passes is accepted.
- Technology strengths:
top-quality technological design (mill parameters, pass
schedules, etc.), and sophisticated automation systems (e.g.
- Price: very competitive,
only a fraction of the price of the major suppliers
(Morgan, Danieli, or SMS, etc.)

Design and development for such
- Technological data supplied
by Metal Pass, a world's expert in determining rolling mill
parameters. Those data include: force, torque, power and
temperature, etc. for
rolling processes size by size and pass by pass, and related data
for motor selection, transmission system design and
machinery strengths checkup, etc.
- Roll pass schedules for all
sizes to be rolled. They are designed and provided by Metal Pass
through utilizing its advanced roll pass design suites.
- Controlled rolling and
controlled cooling processes. Those are determined in Metal Pass
by using its finite-differential programs for temperature
prediction and water box cooling process design, and by
its metallurgical models to perform design for
the controlled rolling, etc.
- Mill Level 2 system. It is
directly supplied by Metal Pass, or provided by Metal Pass'
partners or other vendors in customer preferences. Metal
Pass is a well-known developer and researcher on steel mill
Level 2 systems. Metal Pass provides improvement solutions
worldwide for Level 2 systems supplied by major Level 2
vendors, and designs top-quality Level 2 systems. See
publications since 2008. Mill Level 1 system, and also
Level 3 system if requested, are developed under close
cooperation between Metal Pass and its partners, or, if
preferred by customer, may be supplied by other vendors.

Mill machinery design and
other equipment selection are completed by well-known and
dedicated designers who work in the fields for dozens of years.
Machinery equipment is manufactured by one of a list of
partners of Metal Pass. In the industry, a mill manufacturer is
usually a different
company from the mill designer. Steel mills from American or
European designers (Morgan, SMS or Danieli, etc.) are usually
manufactured in China.

Metal Pass has quite a
few engineers who
as key employees in the
world's top engineering
companies for wire rod
mill, etc., including then senior engineer
of Morgan and then China
Morgan. Top quality models,
design procedures and
automation systems, etc.
from Metal Pass that are
integrated into the mill
design and mill
manufacture, guarantee the
level of the Metal Pass
mill. Metal Pass'
strengths compared with
its US competitors,
exist in accurate
prediction of mill
design parameters, high
quality roll pass and
sophisticated Level 2
models developed in the
past 20 years are also
integrated into the
system to improve rolled
steel properties. The general performance
of Metal Pass' wire rod
mill reach a
to that of its US
or European competitors, though the
price of Metal Pass'
mill is only a fraction
of its US or European competitors. See
